My name is Amy and I am a single mother of a 7 year old little boy. I work full time for AAA. When I have down time, I enjoy reading, crocheting, watching movies, taking walks, spending time outdoors, singing karaoke, and relaxing!

I have struggled with my weight all my life. I have issues with binge eating. Over the years I have gained and lost many many pounds. I have realized that my health needs to be front and center in my life. That being said, I have refocused my priorities, and have commited to eating right and getting in as much physical activity as possible every day.

I have re-evaluated my weight loss goals. I have a tendency to go crazy with healthy eating and exercise for a few weeks, and then it begins to taper off, after I have lost a few pounds. Of course I always end up gaining it back. I have decided this time around to set mini goals, instead of looking at the big picture. I think smaller goals within a smaller time frame will be easier to stick with, and will make my long term goal more attainable!
